    Captain Alan Collins of Miss Judy Charters is back and as you can see he still knows where the big fish are and how to catch them!

    Well, even with east winds howling causing much muddy conditions our inshore captains certainly made it work. While using finger mullet, live shrimp, and mud minnows they were able to bring spotted sea trout, red fish, flounder, black drum, and sheepshead to the hook. Now here’s the thing this bait selection by the fish wasn’t written in stone, because not every cast with shrimp worked. And not every cast worked with the other live bait either. So therefore everyone has to test the biting waters before know exactly which bait was going to work.

    Now for those inshore fishermen that have been waiting to hear about the told trophy red fish bite. Well, wait no longer it has arrived! So without further a do...the big fall/winter red fish bite has arrived! Where do you fish? Rivers and sounds! What the best situation to look for? Up right structure in the form of wood or concrete. These fish are known for picking out an area to feed that hold bait and also is protected from the jaws of the porpoises. Please remember most of these trophies reds are catch and release only! Red fish over 23 inches have to be released back to the wild! We suggest handling the fish carefully and quickly!

    While inshore fishing with Captain Kevin Rose of Miss Judy Charters Greg Latta and son Benjamin Smyrna, Georgia had grand catching day. Greg is holding a nice triple tail that gladly took him up on his large live shrimp. According to Captain Kevin he thought at first it was a hooked red fish, because the fish headed straight for the grass. However, once in the grass the fish wanted out and then it headed straight for the middle of the river. And after it got in some open water it did exactly what most triple tails do! What is that? JUMP up and get some air!

    Michael Lankford Atlanta, Georgia, Captain Kevin Rose of Miss Judy Charters, Crayton Lankford Tucker Georgia, David Lankford Talahi Island, Georgia and Chris Lankford Washougal, WA! They kept these for dinner and released the rest! What do I see? Eight fish! What does this mean? Once cleaned the team would have 16 full fillets or 32 fish sandwiches, or 64 big bites. It just depends on how you want to cut it! No matter what, plenty of fried fish was had by all!

    No baiting up rhythm or reason!
    Can you say, “Live Bait?” According To Captain Kevin Rose of Miss Judy Charters live bait is the ticket to getting these inshore fishing to the hook. However, not all bait work all of the time every time! This past weekend Captain Kevin used light shrimp, mud minnows, and finger mullet. What worked when? According to Captain Kevin shrimp worked one day and mullet the other! Making bait selections for the week having “no rhythm or reason!” So what did he do he had they all and tried each to see which one worked the best!

    What is this? Well, this is one of those flesh eating bugs better known as leeches! No matter what, the fish don’t like them and neither do I!

    Captain Stephen Thompson of Miss Judy Charters is at the old cleaning table finishing up his customer’s fish for the day! What does he have? A fish cleaning smile on his face!
